dark and lovely. coffee, chocolate, cocoa, near burnt roasty malt goodness. well balanced and on the fuller side of porter. founders' beers have been impressive, but their dark beers have been outstanding. traditional and unique at the same time, this one really filled my jones for porter, which by the way, i think is the perfect burger beer. nice....

Pours a jet black w/ a nice one finger chocolate head. Excellent lacing and carbonation. What an amazing looking porter. Smell is really nice. Coffee, chocolate, and some hops hit the nose, w/ coffee being in the forefront. Taste is excellent. Super silky smooth with a nice hop bite to it. Same profile as the nose. Nice feel w/ smooth vs. hops vibe to it. Overall, this is a really nice brew- especially for the style.

Pours a very dark brown with almost no highlights, and a thin cola colored head that retains OK. The aroma kicks it up a notch, with notes of coffee, chocolate, oak, burnt bread, dark fruits (fig, plum, etc.) and some mustiness. The flavor is similar to the aroma with big coffee and chocolate notes upfront, along with dark fruit (raisin, plum, date), burnt bread, a bit of char, molasses and a little woodiness. Mouthfeel is full and rich, and drinkability is pretty good. Very strong offering from Founders, one of the better American porters out there

Pours deep black with medium brown head that persists. Initial aroma is fragrant flowery but this quickly disappears after tasting to become intense chocolate, roasted coffee and malt. Full bodied mouthfeel. Taste is well balanced with a strong, yet not overwhelming, coffee flavor. The hops were not evident even though the IBU stated on label implies a high level of 45.
